No findings of enteroviruses in Swedish patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

  [ 28 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • March 8, 1996


Enteroviruses have been proposed to cause an immune complex
disease in the chronic fatigue syndrome. Altogether 34
patients with the chronic fatigue syndrome, according to
criteria of the Centers for Disease Control, USA, were
studied evenly over the seasons for the possible presence of
a chronic enterovirus infection. In 11 patients, 1-5 faecal
samples were collected at about 6 month intervals for virus
isolation before and after acid treatment, followed by
ultracetrifugation at pH 3 to dissolve possible
enterovirus-antibody complexes. Another 14 fecal samples were
subjected to routine virus isolation alone. Seven pairs of
serum-cerebrospinal fluid samples were analysed for
cross-reactive IgG antibody activity to enteroviruses. In 29
patients a muscle biopsy was collected for enterovirus
polymerase chain reaction (PCR). We were unable to identify
enteroviruses in any of these samples by any of these
techniques. Our study does not confirm evidence for
persistent enterovirus infection in the chronic fatigue
syndrome.
